    like the title says will new born fry eat java moss, i have about 10-14 new guppy fry now (with the mother but she doesn't seem to be eating them) in the tank. I keep a little bunch of what i think is java moss (bought it as a little floating ball form petco) that they seem to stick around for protection. will they eat off of it because i have school and cant feed them like 5 times a day but they seem to be doing fine for the past day .

    They may feed off of any infusoria that may be growing on it yes, but they will not actually eat the moss proper.
